LG Surfaces Embraces Young Talent for Greenbuild 2009
International Student Design Challenge Prototypes to Debut in the USA
LG Surfaces, the North American supplier of Solid Surface, Stone, and Eco Surfaces, will be showcasing innovative concepts designed by students at GREENBUILD , November 10-12, 2009 in Phoenix. The prototypes, which made their debut in Milan, Italy as part of the LG Surfaces Beyond International Student Design Challenge truly show the limitless possibilities of LG’s highly-versatile Solid Surface products and will feature Eco Eden Solid Surface, one of the most environmentally conscious acrylic products available.
The winning student concepts were brought to life by LG Surfaces’ first-class fabrication partners at Sterling Surfaces, an award-winning fabrication shop based in the Boston area. The five designs to be showcased were fully conceptualized by the students and can be viewed online at www.lgbeyond.com . Each concept utilized specified material and color from among the LG Surfaces Solid Surface and Eco Surface product categories for commercial design applications in industries such as retail, hospitality and dining, offices, and education. The prototypes to be showcased are:
• Tim Norris from Arizona State University, with "Equilibrium"
• Christopher Terrell from Auburn University, with "NU-BICLE"
• Michael Rall from North Carolina State University, with "Echo"
• Soo Kang Lee from University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, with "Outdoor Chair X"
• Paul Vu from California State Polytechnic University-Pomona, with "The Jinza Table”
“It’s thrilling to witness the creativity and variety of the student designs come to life. Each of them stepped up to the challenge truly thinking beyond a traditional LG Surfaces application, showcasing the capabilities of our products in an environment where life happens. It has been a great experience to work with young, emerging talent and we look forward to introducing their pieces to attendees at the GREENBUILD show,” said Mike Tasch, Director of Commercial Marketing for LG Surfaces.
Eco Eden Solid Surfaces are certified by Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) for pre-consumer recycled content, and can help specifiers earn LEED certification in several categories. All LG Surfaces products are GREENGUARD certified and GREENGUARD for Children and Schools certified. LG Surfaces will be exhibiting during GREENBUILD at booth # 363.
